Rounded Rectangle Infinity Dies Background

by Kelly Rasmussen May 31, 2018 11 Comments

Today I've created a fun patchwork background using the Rounded Rectangle Infinity Dies. There are 16 metal dies in the set, so you are sure to find the perfect size for any card!

I started out by die cutting a bunch of different sizes of rectangles from scraps of Layering Paper. Then I began playing with the layout by positioning them on the white card panel. I knew I wanted to use the "hello" sentiment from the Everything Smiles Stamp + Cut set, so I white heat embossed it onto one of the rectangles. Once I had that in place, I just filled in around it with the other rectangles until I was happy with how it looked.

Next, I wanted to add some patterns to several of the rectangles. I also wanted to add some texture, so I decided to use stencils and white embossing paste. The three stencils I used were Honeycomb, Every Which Way and Asian Flower Pattern.

Once the embossed pieces were dry, I adhered all the rectangles to a white cardstock panel just slightly smaller than a card base. I left all the edges hanging off the sides and then trimmed them all at once with my paper trimmer so it would have nice clean edges. Finally, I popped the panel up on Snow Folded Card and that was it!

Thanks for stopping by today!
